Excerpt:

The music’s tempo jolted the partyers to new heights of enthusiasm.

“Great DJ,” Devil said, his foot tapping to the beat.

She found herself doing the same. “No kidding.” She eyed the tiny corn dogs on his plate. He had half a dozen. She wondered if he’d miss one… “Hey, is that B-Man over there?” she asked.

When he turned his head, she stole an appetizer off his plate and shoved it in her mouth. Oh yeah, Elliot would be thrilled to see her display her “house manners” in public.

The devil turned back to her. “Not him.” He frowned at his plate, then at her full mouth. “Did you just steal my food?”

“Nope,” she answered around a mouthful.

He stared at her for a moment, then burst into laughter. It was a full-bodied laugh, holding nothing back. Charming and real. She put Devil at the top of her list.

She swallowed, wishing she had something more to drink. As he finished off his plate, he glanced at her clean one, then at her. When he sighed and handed her his beer, she took it gratefully.

“No backwash, I promise.” She opened her mouth to show him hers was clean, then downed half the bottle. “Damn, that was good.”

He blinked. “Ah, you want more?”

“No, no. You drink that. I’ll go get some.”

She moved to go, but he grabbed her arm. They both paused. Together, they glanced down at his large hand on her wrist, and he dropped her arm. “Ah, that’s okay. You stay here. I’ll get you something. Beer? More chow?”

She nodded. “Um, both, thanks. I’ll save your place.”

He left, and she watched his progress as he cut a swath through the crowd. Yes, the devil made his own path. This time, no one bothered him as he returned posthaste. To her surprise, she was glad. The guy smelled good, a hint of subtle cologne that went straight to her head. He had a kickin’ body and a great smile. But that air of Don’t fuck with me really turned her on—ah, made her amenable to his presence.

Talk about a wordy mouthful. At the thought, she found herself glancing down his body to see what else might be a mouthful.

Jesus, Sadie. Get your head out of the gutter, girl.

“You okay?” Temptation leaned closer. “You look a little flushed.”

“You can tell in this lighting?” she teased, trying to get it together.

“Good point.” He handed her a beer, placed his own down on the table, and then put a plate overloaded with goodies on top of their empties. “This is to share. To share,” he said slowly.

“Yeah, yeah. Man, I’m starved.” She fell on the plate as if the Russians were coming.

To her amusement, he fought with her for the cheese curls as much as for the mini egg rolls, and they devoured the snacks in good company.

They talked with their mouths full, making fun of the drunken genie as well as several unsuccessful hookups on the dance floor.

“Oh, now that had to hurt,” the devil said. “Rejected by a zombie and her warty witch friend.”

“Yeah, but he’s not taking it personally.” Sadie took another sip of beer, loving the fact he hadn’t gotten her a sissy glass to drink from. “See? He’s turning from the undead to slutty doctor chick.”

“Slutty? Isn’t that non-PC?” he sneered, and she thought he sounded familiar, but the loud music made it difficult to tell. “Because I say the wrong thing about a woman, not a ‘chick,’ and I’m a caveman asshole setting women’s rights back twenty years.”

“Well, I can say slutty. You have to say sexually adventurous.” Sadie grinned. “Kind of like telling a gay guy he’s a raging homo. Now I can say that, because my brother earned the title. But you try telling him that, and he’ll knock your head off. And call him anything else, and I’ll knock your head off.” She hefted her fake sword before leaning it against the wall. “Don’t try me.”

He shrugged. “You have a sword. I have a pitchfork…somewhere. I think I left it by the bar.” He glanced across the room. “But hey, I have no plans to tangle with your brother. I’m here to sin until this thing is over. Nothing else, and no fights.” He paused, and she swore he added something else under his breath.

At that moment, her brother appeared in the crowd, his gaze searching.

“Shit.”

“What?”

She took Devil by the waist and turned him, noticing how he tensed but ignoring it. “Sorry. I’m having fun not mingling, and my brother is right over there looking for me.”

He relaxed and glanced over his shoulder. “Which one?”

“See the Phantom? He’s a pain in my ass, much as I love him. I didn’t want to come to this tonight, you know.”

“Yeah? Me neither.” He stayed where he was, still watching the dance floor. “Uh-oh. He’s looking over here.”

“Crap, crap, crap. This is a primo spot!” She did what any smart woman in her situation would do. She turned Devil so he completely blocked her from Elliot. “I need to blend in. Work with me, would you?”

“Sure, what—?”

She wrapped her arms around his thick neck and dragged him down for a kiss.

At the taste of his lips against hers, she shuddered, not having expected he’d taste better than his beer, or that up close and personal he’d smell like man and sex and chocolate. Chocolate?

Jesus, she must have had too much to drink.

Then he dragged her closer and deepened the angle of their kiss.

Sadie forgot about her brother, about the last crab cake on the plate, about how much she didn’t want to be at the party.

And fell into the arms of a man who kissed like the devil himself.

A Conversation with Tristina Wright, Author of 27 HOURS (with a Giveaway!)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today, Tristina!

Thank you for having me!

Spoiler Inside SelectShow

What 5 things should readers know about you?

Are we talking 5 weird things…wait, of course we’re talking 5 weird things. Okay, first my hair is not really pastel colors. I know! But I will tell you it’s brunette with a black streak. The black is my birthmark.

I was head cheerleader in high school. With my levels of anxiety and introversion, it’s hard to believe, yes, but I was.

I don’t have wisdom teeth. Not like they were taken out. They never existed. My aunt had double the amount, sooooooo…

I can flip my tongue upside-down. Apparently, the ability to do that is genetic.

I cannot tan. At all. I burn and then it’s back to glow-stick white. I even had a membership to a tanning salon for a while and nada. Nope.

Of course I meant 5 weird things! 😉 LOL…I have a weird wisdom tooth fact too—I only had 3! My 4th never showed at all (and the other 3 had to be taken out anyway, so…) I don’t know of any family members who got my missing one, though, you got me there.

 

Where did the inspiration for this book come from?

Oh man, all sorts of places. One of the earliest mental images I had was a young man standing in front of a statue which was coming to life. I drew on my love of gargoyle mythology (and the Gargoyles cartoon) the most for the initial crux of the story and pulled from various movies, TV shows, and science fiction tropes. The movie Pitch Black inspired some of the nightside horror elements.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing 🙂

 

How long have you been writing, and what (or who) inspired you to start?

Since I was twelve years old and the movie Newsies came out. After I watched it, I decided I wanted to write a sequel. So, I got myself a notebook and wrote myself a sequel!

Then I asked Disney if I could publish it.

They said no.

Nicely.

LOL…at least they were nice about it! I’m sure they missed out, though (as did we all…)

 

What are you working on right now? What can readers look for from you in the next year?

Book 2 in the series, actually! And some scattered short stories for both my Patreon and hopefully submission to pro venues in the coming months. Fingers crossed.

Sounds great—can’t wait!

 

What are you currently reading, and what are your thoughts about it so far?

I’m working my way through the Tokyo Ghoul manga, and I’m loving it. It’s so beautiful and visceral. It tackles one of my very favorite ultimate questions: “What makes a monster a monster?”

Sounds intriguing—I’ll have to see if my resident manga experts have read any in that series!

 

If you had to “sell” your book in a single Tweet, what would you say?

Queer teens living on a colonized moon race against the clock to stop an attack that would make the war between species a war of extinction.

Perfect! Thanks so much, Tristina!

27 Hours
by Tristina Wright
Publication Date:  October 3, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

 

Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.

Author Andrew Buckley Tells Us Why We’ll Love HAIR IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES 2: THE PERILS OF GROWING UP WEREWOLF (with a Giveaway!)

WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS BOOK…

What’s not to love? We’ve got a creepy floating guy with glowing red eyes, there’s something very strange about the new school principal, and, horror of horrors, Colin has a real life girlfriend to deal with!

I think people loved the first book because of the parallel between Colin having to deal with becoming a teenager while tackling the hairy task of turning into a werewolf and the possibility that he may have eaten one of his classmates. It’s a true zero to hero story as Colin learned to master his new identity and fight his evil biology teacher.

In book #2, THE PERILS OF GROWING UP WEREWOLF, we’re encountering a Colin six months into his change as a werewolf and life is a little different. He has a mentor now in Silas, the werewolf that bit him, he has a parental figure in his witch of a Grandmother, and he has his girlfriend, Becca Emerson. When Elwood’s government protection ends up leaving to hunt werewolves in Europe, Colin’s the only one left to notice that something isn’t right with Elkwood. When the resident demon disappears and some of the already strange townsfolk start acting even stranger, it’s up to Colin and Becca to put the pieces together.

I hope people will love this crazy, awesome, hairy little tale!

New Release Review and Giveaway! IN TOO DEEP by Kimberly Kincaid (Station Seventeen)

Title: In Too Deep
Author: Kimberly Kincaid
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 17, 2017
Publisher: Kimberly Kincaid Romance
Series: Station Seventeen
Format: Print & Digital

 

Synopsis:

As Station Seventeen’s rookie, Luke Slater knows his fire and EMS training will be both rigorous and risky, but he never imagined having to partner up with the one woman he wants to keep at arm’s length most of all. Quinn Copeland is as wide-open as Luke is reserved. He has no interest in letting the sweet and sexy paramedic rock his hard-earned control. But the need for composure becomes the need to survive when they find themselves in the crosshairs of a brutal gang leader on their first shift together.

Paramedic Quinn Copeland’s station mates aren’t just her friends. They’re her family. She’d do anything to keep them safe—including reluctantly trusting her impossible-to-read, impossibly gorgeous new partner with the one thing she holds close. As the passion between Luke and Quinn goes from a slow burn to a sizzle, their steps grow more and more dangerous, both in the fire house and out. Can they outwit a cold-blooded killer and face the fears that could cost them everything? Or are they in too deep?

Review:

A perfect blend of romance and suspense!

I wasn’t actually expecting the amount of suspense that was here–several scenes literally had me on the edge of my seat throughout; obviously I was too distracted by that fantastic cover (and Luke) to have read all the way down on the synopsis. Or maybe I did read all the way down, but just forgot–again, I’m blaming that cover. The muscles! The blue eyes!

Either way, I’m not complaining.

I loved Luke and Quinn, both of whom live to take care of people while shying away from being taken care of themselves. Quinn is without family of her own so she’s made her own among the friends she’s found at work; Luke has two remaining family members and they’re the only two people he lets himself be close to. In seven months at Station Seventeen, he’s built up an armor around himself; he’s put in extra shifts and extra work in order to get his paramedic license on top of being a firefighter but has kept himself carefully separate from his coworkers. But of course he’s noticed them, especially Quinn…

Ms Kincaid did a great job balancing the romance and the suspense here. Just when I was fully pulled in to the romantic aspects of Quinn and Luke’s relationship, she’d do something to bring the danger they were in back to the forefront and have the hairs on the back of my neck standing straight up. The drama at the climax–ack!–was intense. Fortunately the ending made it all more than worth it…

In Too Deep is the third book in the series, but would work fine as a standalone. Prior to this I’d only read one of the series novellas– Deep Check , the one with the hockey player in it, of course!–and wasn’t at all lost. The men and women of Station Seventeen (and Precinct Thirty-Three) make up a fantastic family, and I can’t wait to read more from the series soon!

Rating: 4 stars / A-

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Excerpt:

Damn, my hair looks good tonight. I laugh as I continue my way to my destination. It really isn’t a long walk, and once I cross the street I can see the crowd in front of the new hipster establishment. There is totally a wait, but I pass through the two sets of doors to the hostess.

“Is there any bar seating?” I ask, since it’s Luna party of one.

“Yes, if you go thru those doors,” she points towards the back of the building, “there is a full bar out back.” Exactly what I wanted to hear.

“Thank you,” I say to the young girl, and make my way to the back patio. I love the atmosphere of the patio section. There is a bar on one side of the back with seating, and then several tables under a small canvas covering. There are strings of lights decorating the fence, and quite a few people sitting at the bar have their dogs. I love it.

Maybe I need a dog? I haven’t had one since my childhood dog passed away. Condo living really isn’t for dogs, but maybe this house will be the perfect option.

“Welcome to The Treylor Park, is this your first time here?” The young guy with dark hair, aviator sunglasses, a Treylor Park neon orange tank top, and a five o’clock shadow leans against the counter giving me his undivided attention. I’d love to take him for a ride, my god!

“This is my very first time. What do you recommend?” I subtly flirt with him, feeling like a cougar. I’m sure he’s freshly turned twenty-one.

“Personally, the Pina Coolatta is my favorite, but the specialty drink menu is on the other side of the menu,” he winks.

“I’ll take one of those.” I smile in his direction and continue to look over the menu. Everything looks delicious! Breakfast all day, chicken biscuits, pot pie, and there they are… The Treylor Park’s Famous Nachos Grande. The description almost floors me.

Waffle fries, pickles, fried chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, with chive ranch dressing and balsamic gastrique.

I don’t even know what that last part means, but, fuck, it sounds like everything I need in my life, and a good hour on the treadmill in the morning. And the best part is, I’m pretty sure that is all I am going to need to eat because it looks like a feast fit for a crowd. The hot bartender makes his way back over with my lime green Pina Coolatta, garnished with a fresh piece of mint, served in a mason jar. I love it, and it tastes just as delicious as it looks.

“You know what you’d like, hun?” he asks, while making another drink in front of me.

“I’ll have the nachos,” I say, excited like a school girl.

“Sweet choice, I’ll get those right in for you.”

About the Author:

Three times best selling author Dawn Robertson was born and raised in Connecticut before relocating to Florida in 2013. The same year first novel, Hers debuted as an Amazon Best Seller. Replicating that success with two additional novels in the following years.

Excerpt:

Levi lifted Petunia and placed her in the sudsy water. She seemed to like it, too, just like the lady said she would. She made a strange half-honk and half-squealing sound. Carly kept quiet and let Levi work. Quiet worked for her, too, especially when it involved watching Levi bend and, as his board shorts ran down low on his hips, reveal a patch of golden skin. He had a perfect ass. And it was official—Carly was boy crazy. Er, man crazy. She and Petunia, that is. The smart pig had rolled on her side, perhaps to make it easier for Levi to cop a feel. Carly would swear Petunia had batted her eyelashes at the man.

“You okay?” Levi squatted next to Petunia, rubbing her belly with a wet brush as he washed her. He cocked his head to Carly, waiting for her answer.

If she was talking about the other night, no, she was not. She’d been thinking about him way too much. “I didn’t know they’d be here. She just…showed up.”

“It’ll be okay.” He spoke smoothly and without an ounce of emotion.

That was Levi. Cool. Calm. No fear. She wondered if he’d give her lessons.

He rinsed Petunia off one last time with a large sponge, then lifted her out of the tub and straightened to his full height.

“She wants to know a good time to go out to dinner. What should I say?”

“Stall.”

“Good idea. I’ll tell her I’m too busy with work. You’re too busy with work. We’re both just way too busy.”

“So long as you don’t make it sound like we’re so busy we can’t take care of Grace.”

“Right.”

“I’m not worried.” He grinned. “You’ve got this.”

“Yes. Yes, I do. Okay. I should get Petunia back to her owner. Wait. Where’s Petunia?” Carly turned in a circle. No Petunia.

“Shit.” Levi stared in the direction of the airstrip, which of course was fenced off to the general public.

Petunia was headed for the fence where there was a strip of grass and dirt. Mostly dirt. Carly ran for the pig, but Levi, with his long legs, quickly outpaced her. Petunia squealed as if she’d finally tasted the sweet freedom of her ancestors. Dirt, straight ahead. Could paradise be far behind?

Carly heard a woman screech, “My pig! Petunia, come back to me. Come back!”

“I’ve got this!” Levi yelled.

“I’ve got this!” Carly waved to the woman.

Levi reached the pig first, of course, but Carly was right behind him. He put his hands on Petunia but she snorted and, being wet, slipped out of his grip.

Carly tried to block her between them and got a hand on her once, but Petunia got away. Now she was slippery, wet and muddy thanks to the dirt. When she tried to make a run for it again, Carly threw herself on top of her. But it seemed that the harder Carly clung, the more Petunia wriggled. She squealed and snorted in a most unladylike way. And dear God in heaven, was Carly actually wrestling with a pig? Wearing her favorite Forever 21 summer dress?

“Aren’t you going to help me? Put the leash on her! Levi. Hurry! I’ve got her.”

But he simply stood over her, hands on hips, grinning ear to ear. He’d been joined by the pig owner on one side, and Mr. and Mrs. Lane on the other. Mrs. Lane had a worried look on her face, but the amusement in Levi’s eyes was impossible to miss. The owner bent to leash Petunia.

Levi grinned and held out his hand. “Didn’t anyone ever teach you never to wrestle with a pig?”

New Release and Giveaway! NSFW by Piper Lawson

 

About the Book:

Being bad never felt so good…
The office is full of rules. Everything is off-limits. Making a charity calendar of the sexy guys on your floor? Not allowed. Shrinking your boss’ underwear when he sends it for dry-cleaning? Can’t do that either.
But those things keep the natural balance. See, Avery Banks, our resident rising star, is a shark. The tall, blond, and gorgeous kind with zero patience and even less forgiveness.
Good thing I’m the Mae West of executive assistants. I live to put grown men in their place.
He wasn’t supposed to find out…
Now he’s made it his personal vendetta to screw me the way I screwed him. I’m at his beck and call, 24/7, for every humiliating, meaningless request.
Until we stumble on a new game. One we both want to play. One we both need to win.
And once we start…I’m not sure Avery wants to replace me.
I’m not sure I want him to.
All I want is more of this. The fire under the ice. What happens behind closed doors.
It’s twisted, and so damn hot. But he’s my boss. And with the company coming off a scandal even I couldn’t engineer? What we’re doing is strictly NSFW.
Lucky for me, Avery and I have one thing in common…
We both suck at following the rules.

Shelby is nervous to start her senior year after spending the whole summer away from home. After all, it’s hard to be carefree when you’re trying to protect a secret.

Shelby was in a devastating car accident, and everyone in town thinks that she was undergoing more physical therapy in Denver.  Instead, Shelby’s mother enrolled her in a clinical program to stop the panic attacks that started after the crash. The treatment erased Shelby’s memory of the accident, but she can’t help feeling as if a piece of herself is missing, that the treatment took more than the doctors claimed.

So when Shelby starts hallucinating a boy with dark and mysterious eyes, she knows it must be a side-effect of the clinical program. Except you can’t kiss hallucinations. And this boy insists that they know each other and are in love…

Between figuring out his plan for the rest of his life and dealing with the pain of his injuries, this grouchy hottie isn’t in the mood for the perky physical therapist who makes him in ache in more than one place.

Jordan Mueller doesn’t have time for a sulky ex-NFL player, even one who looks like Tanner. She’s done with falling for the bad boy without a heart. When she’s forced out of her apartment and offered an opportunity too good to pass up, she agrees to move in with Tanner. She’s only there to speed up his recovery. No funny business, even if her body is telling her otherwise.

As Tanner and Jordan spend more and more time together, they begin to see each other in a new light that threatens to change everything. But when the ghosts of girlfriends past reappear, Tanner must decide if he’s willing to put everything on the line for a shot at a future with Jordan.

Excerpt:

Tanner Cole grabbed the remote off the couch cushions and clicked through the two hundred or so channels on his satellite TV. Daytime TV sucked. Even worse: it sucked yesterday, the day before, and the day before that too. But it wasn’t like he had a lot of choices for entertainment right now. His knee was slowly healing, but mostly, he wanted to be left alone while he tried to figure out how he was going to deal with the rest of his life.

He was a professional football player. Well, he used to be. He’d torn both his ACL and MCL and broken his tibia after planting his cleats on some shitty turf in Washington, DC, during the last two minutes of a fucking blowout he shouldn’t have been playing in in the first place. His coach had practically begged him to sit on the bench that afternoon and spend a few minutes powering down some Gatorade while his backup took the risk of injury instead. In the coach’s defense, “practically begging” meant he glanced over at Tanner and said, “why don’t you have a seat, and we’ll finish this one for you?” But Tanner had insisted that cold afternoon in Washington. He’d played anyway. And his career was ended because of a freak hit by a rookie who thought he was making his mark by permanently sidelining one of the best left tackles in the league.

Winners didn’t sit on the bench. Winners went out there and dominated, in football and in life. He remembered every buzzword and cliché-laden locker-room speech he’d heard in his career, typically when he was lying away at three AM and wishing he had that thirty seconds or so before his injury back again. He’d wanted to make the decision when it was time to hang it up. That was taken away from him. He wasn’t happy about it.

People (specifically his ex-girlfriend) were not as willing to put up with his various personality flaws when he wasn’t headline news anymore. He could tick off those shortcomings on his fingers, and he’d done so more than once while alone in the predawn hours. According to his ex, Star, he was too overbearing, too competitive, too impatient, and too insensitive. She didn’t seem to care about his faults when he was ordering $150 bottles of champagne at the club or buying her a little somethin’ somethin’ at the jeweler’s or the latest designer shoes and bags. He’d wanted to believe their breakup was all her fault, but being alone for a few months brought some clarity. He was as much to blame for the end of their relationship. He’d have to man up at some point and make an apology.

Before he met with the surgeon who was putting his knee back together, Tanner had been told by the team’s doctor that he wasn’t going to play football again.

“With your age and these types of injuries, you’re not going to be able to pass any team’s physical, even after rehab. I know this isn’t how you wanted things to end,” the doctor said.

“No, it isn’t,” Tanner said.

“Look at it this way: it’s a great chance to get on with the rest of your life.”

Tanner knew the guy was just doing his job, but he was already sick of people telling him to look on the bright side. He’d be damned lucky if he walked with a limp. Right now, he’d be happy if he could get off the couch and walk to the mailbox without a walker.

Excerpt:

While he’d sure as hell rather be surrounded by his tech equipment at the command center, Trygg couldn’t find much to object to as he followed Sia up an exterior staircase to a private third-floor entrance of the house. As irritated as he was after her power play in the car just now—not to mention her earlier act of defiance that had rattled him more than he cared to admit, even to himself—it was hard to think about much else except the rhythmic sway of her hips as she mounted the old iron steps.

Very hard.

Her long, elegant spine and firm backside were a temptation that stoked a growing heat inside him as he stalked up the climb behind her. Everything male in him burned with desire. Everything Breed in him hungered for her too. If she chanced a look over her shoulder, it would be damn close to impossible to hide the amber lighting his irises or the press of his sharp fangs as they filled his mouth.

Letting her win just now was a mistake he already regretted, but that’s where her control was going to end. He’d go inside as she insisted and they’d do a cursory look through the rest of the items they’d brought with them. He would point out something or other so she’d have a bone to chew on, then he’d take everything back to the command center and dig into the meat of the scant evidence alone.

The way he preferred to operate.

He scowled at her when they reached the top of the stairs. “Is this the way you sneak in all the men you bring home with you?”

“Only the surly ones.” Her blonde brow arched over her long-lashed eyes. “And to answer the question you really want to ask, I’ve never brought anyone up here before.”

He didn’t want to ask that, so why did her answer give him such a healthy stab of satisfaction?

Review:

I love that the 1001 Dark Nights series novellas offer relatively risk-free ways to both enjoy favorite authors and series and find new ones. How is it I’ve never read any of Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed books before? I honestly have no idea, but now that I have, I must read more of them!

I loved both Sia and Trygg (just don’t ask me to say his name out loud, please!) and being immersed in their world was a fun, heady ride. We weren’t bogged down with the nitty-gritty details of how everything worked there, but learned just enough to understand the challenges they were dealing with and the things that made them what they are. Once the external threats were dealt with, their relationship problems were resolved a bit quickly, but since it was really up to one of them to just not be a jerk about what had happened and give in gracefully, it made sense that that was what they decided to do. Obviously, they belonged together, so why fight it? 😉

I’ll definitely be coming back for more from this world–soon!

Rating: 4 stars / A-
